CBS Pulls "Hatchet Job" on Scholars for 9/11 Truth

CBS Pulls "Hatchet Job" on Scholars for 9/11 Truth: "Madison, WI (PRWeb) February 2, 2007 -- Members of Scholars for 9/11 Truth, a non-partisan organization of students, experts and scholars dedicated to exposing falsehoods and revealing truths about 9/11, have some bones to pick with CBS NEWS for an article entitled, 'Dangerous World Fuels Conspiracy Theories' (30 January 2007). According to James H. Fetzer, the society's founder, 'It is chock full of false assertions, even including misidentification of Steven Jones, my former co-chair, as the society's founder.'

'That is rather rich,' Fetzer said. 'Steve and I have had a parting of the ways over differences in our attitude and approach toward the science and the politics of 9/11 research. But if he had been 'the founder', he should have been conducting a 'house cleaning', not abandoning ship.' The split between them, Fetzer added, has had a beneficial effect. 'A cult-like atmosphere had developed around him, which I considered to be bad for scientific research on 9/11.'

The CBS report focuses on Gary Welz, an adjunct lecturer at John Jay Criminal College and Lafayette University, who told a CBS reporter, Alfonso Serrano, that he had left Scholars in December following Jones 'after other prominent members of Scholars began promoting wacky explanations for the fall of the twin towers.' Fetzer replied, 'That's wrong on several accounts, including that the Twin Towers did not 'fall' but disintegrated from massive sources of energy.'"
